Tempo and spirit of the dance are perfect !
The title is Lady Laiton's Almain (there are two versions, one with divisions, probably a consort version here is the score :
viewtopic.php?f=12&t=8903&hilit=laiton+almain#p80013
and the other one like yours.
The guitar transcriptor took some freedom from the original version.

Thanks Valery. Thanks for the info regarding the correct name. I like your version of it, it works so well on the lute.
